Blog Tour: Review – No Good Deed by Kara Connolly

No Good Deed by Kara Connolly

Ellie Hudson is the front-runner on the road to gold for the U.S. Olympic archery team. All she has to do is qualify at the trials in jolly old England. When Ellie makes some kind of crazy wrong turn in the caverns under Nottingham Castle—yes, that Nottingham—she ends up in medieval England.

Ellie doesn’t care how she got to the Middle Ages; she just wants to go home before she gets the plague. But people are suffering in Nottingham, and Ellie has the skills to make it better. What’s an ace archer to do while she’s stuck in Sherwood Forest but make like Robin Hood?

Pulled into a past life as an outlaw, Ellie feels her present fading away next to daring do-gooding and a devilishly handsome knight. Only, Ellie is on the brink of rewriting history, and when she picks up her bow and arrow, her next shot could save her past—or doom civilization’s future.

Overall Thoughts:

I’m a big ole sucker for a retelling and a Robin Hood one is no exception.  Who doesn’t love a tale about friendship and helping out those who are truly in need?  Add on top of that we involve time travel and modern-day events and you have a recipe for a fun adventure!
I was a little fuzzy on the process of things at times and about how a few things came to be but overall it was a fun and quick read, something I’d recommend to all retelling fans.  Ellie was a great female lead, a girl chasing her dream and not fitting your typical “girl” mold that we see so often.  I loved her willingness to see the bigger picture and realizing there are limits to any power you are given and they must be respected or there could be real consequences.
